Mail Order Regulation 2019

Provisions for foreign mail order companies with an obligation to register in Switzerland

From 1 January 2019, foreign mail order companies with an annual turnover of CHF 100,000 and above originating from small consignments (tax amount equal to CHF 5.00 or less) sent to customers in Switzerland will now also be liable to pay value added tax. The arrangements you need to make as a retailer affected by this regulation for the correct shipping of international postal consignments into Switzerland are set out on the Federal Tax Administration site. You can also register as a company liable to tax.
